Dr. Alan G. Robinson, an award-winning author, an educator and a consultant, after studying the impact of TWI on businesses for several years recently commented “The TWI programs have a long track record of dramatically boosting productivity and quality almost wherever they are used, they might well be the most successful supervisor training programs ever developed. Over the last four decades, they have supported the Kaizen efforts of some of the world’s most efficient companies. In particular, they played a central role in the conceptual development of lean production and in instilling its most important principles in the minds of millions”.
